The OCD Healing Journey

Getting to the Heart of Our Obsessive and Compulsive Struggles

by Mark DeJesus

Obsessions and Compulsions Don’t Have to Rule Your Life

OCD, Religious OCD, Relationship OCD

Many are finding themselves under the clutches of disturbing thoughts and emotions that keep showing up in their mind. They get lost in how to deal with these troublesome thoughts that demand for their attention.

While obsessions and compulsions are not a new struggle, the term OCD is fairly new. Yet for a long time, many have mistaken this challenging mental health battle as one of cleanliness and strict order. It goes far deeper than that.

Mark DeJesus found himself locked in the trenches of OCD, but did not even realize it for a long time. This book uncovers many chapters of his life where he had to recognize how obsessions and compulsions influenced his life and how to walk in greater freedom and healing.


It seems our world is becoming more obsessive and compulsive. With increasing anxiety, stress and worry, there are many who are secretly wrestling with intrusive disturbances in their thoughts that are stealing their peace.

The good news is that obsessive compulsive struggles do not have to own the final answer on your journey. Mark is living proof that you do not have to remain under the weight of OCD your whole life.

This book is a blueprint of his journey getting to the heart of the struggle that has helped many to make sense of what they battle with and how to embrace their own journey of healing.

While the principles Included in The OCD Healing Journey can apply to any form of OCD, there is special insight provided for religious OCD, scrupulosity, relationship OCD and aspects of obsessive-compulsive struggles that interfere with healthy relationship communication.
